When I first saw this dress, the top ruffle reminded me of the ocean waves which sparked fond memories of my youth. I would spend countless hours at the beach when I was younger; competing with my brother to see who could swim out the farthest and jump over every wave. Eating cold turkey sandwiches with a good amount of sand on our hands. Beach days were always carefree and usually ended with me fast asleep on the car ride home. Somethings just haven’t changed, well, I have managed to not eat sand anymore.
